TRT Read out of video playing

Wondering if there is a native way that the director can show the "Total Reaming Time" for a that is playing in a template cued from director?

I am guessing the answer is custom plug-in, which might be a easy place to start writing my own plugin.

At this time, I don't see a way, even with plug-ins. The video engine is part of the Ventuz Runtime and Director currently only sees the movie as a URI to a generic asset. As such it is no different than - let's say - a still image. We have internally talked a lot about integrating the video engine in some form into Director to read meta information such as length and use it (e.g. when cueing a movie on the playlist/time, automatically set the entries time to the movie length or so), but for that the content/asset handling in Director has to be extended a lot and right now there is no clear date when we will do that.

I ended up just using some OSC to send the time data to a app to display my video count outs.
